A little later today, I’m going to give you my opinion of the all-new 2017 Acura NSX, which was recently released after approximately ten years of waiting, hoping, and wondering when it would arrive. But before we get into the new NSX, I’m going to show off a few of my favorite old NSX models that are currently listed for sale on Autotrader. Here goes:
At $119,500, this is the single most expensive "old" NSX on Autotrader — and it’s no surprise that it’s so pricey. Not only does this NSX hail from the car’s final model year of 2005, but it also has traveled just 9,105 miles in the last 13 years. Naturally, it’s also in perfect condition, with a gorgeously well-kept red exterior and a perfect black interior. It’s offered by a private seller in Chino, California, near Los Angeles.

At $33,932, this is the cheapest NSX in the entire country. It’s precisely the opposite of the most expensive car: It hails from the first year of production, and it’s accumulated quite a bit of miles over the years — 103,227, to be exact. Like the most expensive NSX, however, the cheapest one appears tremendously well-kept, with a handsome interior and exterior, though its black paint color is slightly less desirable than the more common red. It’s offered by a private seller in Atlanta. Find a 1991 Acura NSX for sale
The lowest-mileage NSX in the entire country is this one: a 1991 model — currently listed for $95,000, from Ryan Friedman Motor Cars on Long Island — with just 5,000 original miles. I was expecting the lowest-mileage NSX to hail from the last few years of production, not the first — and that makes this well-preserved NSX especially unique. Unfortunately, it, too, is finished in black, rather than the more desirable red — but it’s hard to argue with the appeal of a 25-year-old NSX that’s basically brand new.

This is the highest-mileage (and most modified) NSX on Autotrader: A 1991 model that’s traveled 124,000 miles, which is a pretty substantial contrast to the one above. It features a widebody kit, fixed headlights from the later NSX, aftermarket wheels, a matte paint job and a series of other modifications listed in the ad — including an exhaust, a spoiler, an improved clutch, and more. It’s offered for $44,900, in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, a small town on the Florida panhandle near Destin. Find a 1991 Acura NSX for sale
Of course, this one will split opinions, but I absolutely love this color. It’s called Imola Orange Pearl, and it came out in the mid-2000s, presumably as a response to the mid-2000s copper-colored car craze. The listing claims this particular example is one of just seven in the entire country, which wouldn’t surprise me; I’ve certainly never seen this color in person. This NSX is offered by a private seller in San Diego, though it sports Pennsylvania plates; it’s listed for $80,000, with 38,448 miles on the odometer. Find a 2004 Acura NSX for sale
